Due to the recent rise in the Covid-19 cases in Iowa, and under the Open for Iowa and the governor’s guidelines, the 4-H staff has decided to cancel the 2020 Awards Banquet. We still want to recognize the 4-Her’s accomplishments, so we will be delivering awards and treats to those who have worked so hard all year. We will be contacting families in the coming weeks to make arrangements. Thank you for your continued support of our 4-H program in Black Hawk County.

If you have questions, feel free to email Diane at wolfejd@iastate.edu.  Stay well.
